by Anne Fadiman
"I highly recommend this book. When a Hmong infant is diagnosed with epilepsy, her parents and her American doctors struggle over how best to treat her illness, based on each culture's beliefs and medical practices.  While this book isn't about Vietnam, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in anthropology, medicine, or Asian and American culture.  It's a compelling and highly thought-provoking story." (Julie Hessler)

Order Catfish & Mandala

Vietnamese in America
by Lori Coleman
"Isn't this a lovely cover? This hardcover resource book for older elementary and middle school age children gives a useful overview of Vietnamese immigration and assimilation in the United States. It is not positive about the Vietnam-American war and it has a few frightening images, however the tone is quite positive towards Vietnamese Americans. This book nicely addresses some of the difficulties Vietnamese Americans had in their move to the United States, which can help put things into context for readers. It provides a very brief look at Vientamese culture, but does have a good section on 'famous' Vietnamese Americans, complete with photographs." (Allison Martin)
